WAXGOAT169 Unholy Trinity (USA) - Omnimalevolence - LP
In the mid of 00' when GoatowaRex was still a young label (still young now), we sometime receive promo material, back then when Bandcamp and Soundcloud were yet to be invented, people do send out physical promo, most of them were in hand made tape or CD-r, but also rarely, such as the case of Unholy Trinity, promo can be in the form of plastic wrapped CD album. That was how we found out this brilliant album, Omnimalevolence, a masterpiece of dark, occult and Polish inspired black metal.
The story of Unholy Trinity can trace back to 2002, Aamonael (Avichi, Nachtmystium) made 4-track recordings together with member Grave on drums with material Aamonael had written. Zmij (Zalnik, Nachtmystium) added vox to this recorded material. It was decided all the vocals would be done in Polish – Zmij and Aamonael’s native tongue. Vocals naturally were the vicious attacks that Zmij was known for as heard on the kvlt Zalnik tape releases and notably on Nachtmystium’s s/t mcd release (Regimental, Painiac) which featured both Zmij and Aamonael while they were in a sprint in Nachtmystium.
These recordings sat for a few years, and in 2005 Aamonael released them under his label Numen Malevolum Barathri out of DeKalb, IL naming it Unholy Trinity - Omnimalevolence. Zmij contributed some portraits and art to the release. Copies were traded and made their way into underground distros all over the scene during those days. The music includes some of the first stylings of Aamonael he would later continue using in Avichi.
Coming out in the next batch of GoatowaRex, is finally the official repress of of Omnimalevolence. This definitive edition comes with remaster audio, new cover artwork by artist Dhomth, presented in a gatefold with black vinyl, and also includes the original art by Zmij for the Omnimalevolence release.
